“What happened in Ukraine was a successful attempt of political resistance, it was a civil revolt against the criminal regime,” expert of the Armenian Center for National and International Studies Ruben Mehrabyan said, analyzing the developments in Kiev. He recalled that everything started from the deviation from the European path, the refusal to sign an Association Agreement with the EU.

“Ukrainian people opened a door to Europe, and opened a door of hope for other countries. Putin’s policy was a complete failure,” he said.

Putin’s project failed in Ukraine and this can lead to a chain reaction, political analyst Edgar Vardanyan said.

Which was the secret of success of the Ukrainian opposition? “The decisions were being made by people in Maidan, not the leaders,” Mehrabyan said.

“We saw a miracle of self-organization in Maidan. This was the result of courage of Ukrainians,” he added.
